A good quality and attractive GoPro handle - an excellent alternative to "The Bobber",
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: POV Buoy Floating Camera Handle - GoPro Edition (Camera)
*This video was originally posted on my GoPronaut YouTube channel.
I decided to try this handle out based on all the positive feedback I have seen about SP Gadgets' POV cases in the GoPro community.
Inside the package, is the POV Buoy Floating Camera Handle, a thick, adjustable wrist strap/lanyard and a carabiner. The handle comes with the standard GoPro mount and long thumbscrew for attaching. While weighing almost nothing (~2oz), the handle feels tough and high quality. The black grip material is similar to that of what you would find in interlocking gym floor mats, and is pleasant and comfortable to hold.
The wrist strap allows you to tether the GoPro to your arm, the lock fits snugly around the lanyard - giving you the confidence that it will not slip off your arm if properly secured.
Unlike other handles, this one is built to float. Even with the addition of the battery or LCD BacPac, this thing floats like a champ - sticking out about 1.5 inches from the surface. The orange tip of the handle makes it easy to spot from a distance.
Overall, I am very satisfied with SP Gadgets POV Buoy floating handle. If you're looking for a floating handle, or an alternative to "The Bobber" - I highly recommend this product!
